"Mavis is a strong and resourceful protagonist, and Baker is a strong and resourceful writer. They make a good team." David Pitt. ALA
"Easy read - didn't want it to end. Laughed out loud some times! Get it - you won't be sorry." Debbie Vassallo, a reader.Private Investigator Mavis Davis starts out searching for a missing girl as a favor to wacky Candy Finklestein, her half-day, high school worker, but the search soon becomes a search for a kidnapper and murderer when the missing girl's brother also disappears and their father winds up dead. Because of her missteps, Mavis is implicated in the kidnapping and must solve the case to clear her name. Even her cop boyfriend, Ben, can't help her this time--or rather, won't. If Mavis can't solve this caper, she's facing a life sentence!
